WD My Passport Essential SE 1TB Review

thinkdigit.com
14 November 2011
  • Summary: The WD 1TB drive gives a cost per GB of Rs.6.97 which was considerably higher than that offered by the 1TB ADATA Classic CH11 drive (Rs.5.05). Overall performance was good, but not better than the Classic CH11 drive. So unless the pricing comes down, we find this drive hard to recommend.
  • Pros: Compact form factor, WD SmartWare utility
  • Cons: Slow performer

WD My Passport Essential SE 1TB

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: Western Digital includes some excellent utilities with its My Passport Essential external hard drive. That said, its poor transfer times and flimsy case make the $109 asking price hard to stomach. For $15 more, the Iomega eGo offers better speeds, and is rated to survive 7-foot drops, and if you're looking to save some money, the $99 Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex couples a sweet set of software with better performance.
  • Pros: Well-designed software, Easy to back up and restore files, Includes diagnostic tools
  • Cons: Poor transfer times, Plastic housing feels flimsy, Relatively pricey

  • Summary: While the USB 3.0 drive is not the fastest (with its 5200-rpm internal), it should satisfy most people need for portable storage and at the same time boasts both waifish dimensions and massive capacity.

  • Cons: 5200-rpm drive, No power switch, While 1TB is big, competitors have similar drives with 50% more capacity, Only 2 year warranty, Not compatible with Elite dock

When shopping it is important to look for a drive that is easy to use, comes with an abundant amount of features and protects the drive inside very well. All of those features can be found in the Western Digital My Passport Series of products.
